HUNTSVILLE, Texas - University of Houston freshman Emily Gilbreth wrapped up the Women's Golf team's fall season with a 12th-place finish Tuesday afternoon at the Sam Houston State/Harold Funston Invitational.
After opening with a career-low 72, Gilbreth closed out the tournament with a final-round 78 to slip into a tie for 12th at 224 on the 6,067-yard, par-71 course at Raven Nest Golf Club. It also was the best finish in her young collegiate career, topping her 37th-place showing at the "Mo"Morial Invitational in early September.
On the team side, host Sam Houston State took home the title with a score of 874 to finish three strokes ahead of Lamar. Incarnate Word (893), Oral Robertson (901) and Stephen F. Austin (911) rounded out the top-five individual leaders.
With only one student-athlete competing, the Cougars were not eligible for the team title.
Lamar's Wenny Chang earned medalist honors at 215 to finish a stroke ahead of Incarnate Word's Flower Castillo and Ghni Ngo of Lamar.
Following the Sam Houston State/Harold Funston Invitational, the Cougars will take a break from competitive action. Houston won't compete again until they open the spring season Feb. 17-18 at the Central District Invitational, hosted by Michigan State at River Wilderness Country Club in Parrish, Fla.
